Are they afraid of ruining the friendship?
Most Helpful Girl
I have a friend that I am totally attracted to. Sexually, physically, and mentally. However, I wouldn't date him because I don't want to ruin what relationship we have. Sometimes I don't want to date a friend because I want to keep them around for a long time and relationships can ruin that chance. I like the fact that I can ask him about anything and everything and we are both so open with each other and there are no expectations about anything. I don't want to lose that opportunity. If a girl doesn't want to date a good friend, it might not be because she doesn't find him attractive or unappealing, but it could be because she finally has a good friend of the opposite sex to talk openly with about anything and know that there is no judgment on either end.0
